Cesar Azpilicueta’s stance on Chelsea ‘transfer request’ revealed amid Barcelona ‘request’


Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta is reluctant to hand in a ‘transfer request’ to force the Blues out as Barcelona are reportedly demanding the Spaniard take action to help secure the La Liga transfer.

Xavi and figures from the Catalan club will be hoping to produce a triple hit from Chelsea defenders. However, with the recent financial difficulties present at Camp Nou, progress on three deals has stagnated slightly. Andreas Christensen, who was released by the Blues in their recent retained and released list, is set to sign his contract soon alongside AC Milan’s Franck Kessie.

Both players had to wait until Thursday night to find out that the economic levers are voting, which would essentially give Barca much-needed cash to balance the books and carry out short-term transfer business, although their financial troubles well. high profile means they must always be careful not to breach Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.

Once these two deals are announced, Robert Lewandowski, Marcos Alonso and Azpilicueta himself could be next in line as Barca continue to rebuild in order to give current European champions Real Madrid better bang for their buck this season. next in La Liga. Alonso is set to be fired by Chelsea this summer but manager Thomas Tuchel and the board are more reluctant with their No.28 who has served for 11 years so far in west London, football.london understand.

Of course, the fact that a one-year extension to the defenders’ contract was activated a few months ago hasn’t changed the situation and if Tuchel is keen to keep his captain reliable in this defensive reshuffle, he has already admitted that the loyalty the 32-year-old has shown to the cause that he will respect any decision he makes.

“He deserves it,” said the Chelsea head coach. “And I listen to my captain. He’s been at this club for over a decade, so he has that right. That’s my opinion. He’s everything Chelsea stands for, and I’m so, so happy he’s the captain because he’s humble, hardworking, a nice, polite guy. I am happy that in football it is possible that a guy like him can win all the trophies. It sets an example. It sets the tone. It sets the mood to a very high level.

“It’s absolutely clear, but there are more layers and levels that we have to consider. It’s also if he can give it all away, if he’s fully committed. If he can’t get rid of this feeling [about wanting a new challenge]we must talk about it openly, seriously and respectfully because it deserves it. We [need to] find out if he can give away all that makes him special. I think, with all due respect, he can only be special if he’s 100% committed and doesn’t have another little voice in his head, not a single worry in his head, that he might have had to do something differently.

“He’s only the guy he is when he’s fully committed. That’s his foundation. So that’s what we have to find out. That doesn’t mean we’ll find out tomorrow or today, we we still have time because we are also in the privileged position where we have a contract. We have to see.

However this transfer saga plays out, Azpilicueta seems determined to leave the club he holds so dear on good terms. Indeed, as reported by the Daily Mail, the former Marseillais is unwilling to submit a transfer request with Barça, which seems to put internal pressure on the Spanish international to act so that the negotiations progress.
